Skunky scent filled the room upon cracking this can. Just slightly green yellow pour with lots of white head. Grassy, weedy skunky scent. Odd taste. Mostly hops and grains but there is something odd there. I know the taste but cant place it. Some type of bean maybe? Not bad, easy to drink, just not a fan of that taste.

500 ml can from LCBO. Pours pale golden in coulour, frothy white head, which disssipates quickly, leaving decent lacing. Aroma is mild corn, and flavour is sweet, corny. Mouthfeel is smooth, finely carbonated.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - AUG 24, 2009
Pours an uber pale yellow with a short lived white cap. Aroma is tap water, corn, and wet fresh cut grass and cow crap. The flavour is malt corn sweetness with a soapy bitterness. This beer has got some pretty weak game, Not that I was expecting much.

Frothmeister (708) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2010
500ml can. Pours a clear orangish yellow with a white head that quickly diminished. Aroma is malty, with some tropical fruit (pineapple), slight straw, and honey. Mostly flavours of sweet grain, with faint orange pith, and minimal hops in the finish.

Smooth, toasty. Slightly astringent finish. Certainly a stepup from the monstrosity the original is.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2009
Can. Light gold with a slight haziness. Nose of malt and boiled rice. Fairly refreshing palate but lacks something in the middle. Flavour leans a little heavily towards the sweet end of the scale. Minor wet gravel and cardboard. Lifeless quasi-bitter finish.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2009
A grassy and skunky aroma and an initial taste of grains that quickly leaves behind an overly sweet flavour. With each succeeding sip, this became less and less appealing, leaving me with the feeling that if this is what organics taste like, maybe it’s time to rethink the green approach.

Papillon (399) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2010
500 mL Can. Pale straw body with a frothy-bubbly white head that settles to a film and ring leaving good lace. Aroma of hay, grass, and clover; notes of pear, citrus, but there is a harsh earthy-musty undertone that I find stings the nose. The flavor is more likable than the aroma with the sweet malts dominating. There is also an intense citrus-like expression without the acidity; suggesting this is a beer that would go well with tacos or other Mexican cuisine. Light bodied feel in the mouth. Lime-peel aftertaste and finish. I’ll definitely think about this one next time I sample Mexican cooking.

Lightly troubled pour showing very little carbonation (almost none to be honest). The head shows average retention and fades to a thin layer. The nose is pretty bland but does offer some grains at first hand. The taste is just weird pairing some sort of yeastiness to bitter malts. It has quite a vegetable kick to it to be honest and I didn’t enjoy it so much but not only for the taste itself but also for the absence of structural elements that could have saved it like some body or more hops to balance it out. The mouthfeel is a sharp at first but drops quickly to that bitter malty finish. I guess the only good aspect of this beer would be that it’s eco-friendly.
